Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.

Sorry to keep you waiting.

Ok, so you've already checked the fuses.

The next thing to check is whether the wiper is receiving power. For this the cover under the wiper arms must be removed.

Loosen the nuts which hold the wiper arms on the rods. The wiper arms are mounted on a type of cone, which must be levered off with pliers or similar.

Enclosed a video which shows (indeed with another vehicle) how this works.

Then you have to lift the cover under the wipers, most vehicles only have it clipped in.

The wiper motor usually has a 3-pin plug, one cable must be positive to the other ground, the third is only the feedback for the final position of the wiper. If there is power, the wiper motor is defective and must be replaced.

If the vehicle should not be inspected by a mechanic, then the wiring harness and the switch must be checked.

I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
